Hey Chica,

Good to see you guys out there. Did you get out of there before it started raining? We ended up towing ours back in the rain. Have you got that 180 yet? And was your beeping in the boat that conector in the engine compartment like it was mine?

It sucks we were supposed to go out today too but it doesn't look like mother nature wanted us to! We must be grounded or something!

Hey Chad!

Yeah, we were supposed to head out today too, but the wind is pretty crazy at my house right now. Rain is one thing, but the wind is what causes us to stay grounded.

The beep issue seems to be resolved. They found a short at the horn itself.

As far as the 180 goes, well, I rode two away for a few seconds but then continued with too much weight on my toes and ended up with a wonderful Fisher Faceplant!! It looked GREAT right up until that point though

Christie, you were booming it out there! Huge Air, very nice, was that a backroll attempt? How far did you get? Looks cold but looks like you guys had a blast! Nice pics.

Thanks, Mark. Yes, it was a backroll attempt. I got about 3/4 of the way around, dug the nose in the second wake and my front foot got ejected. I felt the spin on that one of these days!

Josh did a great job with the camera considering the lighting was terrible!

Looks like you had the rotation and your head is moving right too. Mine turns out like a flat 360 attempt because my head doesn't move the right way. When I started doing 180's I would do them going from the inside of the wake out. Something you might want to try before the big W2W 180's just a thought. It is fun seeing you guys going so big!
Is Josh trying new angles that make you guys look like you are flying higher or were you guys just pumped that day?

Mark -, Josh didn't use any special techniques to make us look like we were getting bigger air. Although, he is only 9 years old and still kind of short so maybe that is why we look like we are going huge! lol

Some of us did try new boards and went out to 78 feet...maybe that is what did it :-)

Being closer to the water always help with the big air look. Too funny, well let him know he is doing a great job, great pics.
